10 Church Representation, Ecumenical Relations and Ministers Measure Schedule 1 — New Schedule 3 to the Synodical Government Measure 1969 (9) A person whose name is already on the roll is not disqualified from having his or her name on the new roll merely because he or she has not complied with the condition in Rule 1(4)(c) or (5)(c) (habitual attendance at public worship), if the person was prevented from doing so by illness or other sufficient cause; but the application form must specify the circumstances. 5 Publication of new roll 6 (1) After the completion of a new roll under Rule 5, the PCC must— (a) publish the roll in such form (whether electronic or otherwise) as it decides, and (b) make a copy of the roll available for inspection, on a reasonable request being made. (2) The roll as published under paragraph (1)(a) must include every name on the roll but not any other personal information.

(4) The period for which the roll is published and made available in copy form under paragraph (1) must be at least 14 days before the annual parochial church meeting.

(6) The new roll takes effect on publication under this Rule (at which point the previous roll ceases to have effect). 10 15 20 25 Boundary changes 7 (1) On an alteration of the boundaries of parishes, the PCC of each parish from which an area is transferred must ask each person resident in that area whose name is on the roll of the parish whether the person wishes to have his or her name transferred to the roll of the other parish. (2) Where a person answers in the affirmative— (a) the PCC must remove the person’s name from the roll for its parish and inform the PCC of the parish in which the person now resides, and (b) the PCC of that parish must enter the person’s name on its roll without requiring him or her to apply for enrolment. 30 35 Notification of number on roll 8 The chair, vice-chair, secretary or electoral officer of a PCC must, no later than 1 June in each year, give the secretary of the diocesan synod written notification of the number of names there are on the roll of the parish as at the date of the annual parochial church meeting. 40 First Consideration - February 2017
